The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is a German political foundation named after Konrad Adenauer, the first chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. The foundation aims to promote democracy, the rule of law, and social market economy. One of the ways in which the foundation promotes its goals is by awarding scholarships to international students who wish to study in Germany. The scholarships are intended to provide financial support to students who have exceptional academic records and are committed to contributing to the social, economic, and political development of their home countries.
